Matt and Liz Hinkley were truly the best wedding photographers that we could have asked for. We were married on July 6, 2013, and Hinkley Photo made sure we will never forget a single moment of our day.
Our engagement and wedding photos a...
re absolutely stunning, and everyone in my family is so pleased (and some of our family members are very picky, to put it kindly). My husband and I could not be more thrilled with the memories we have, and the hardest part of working with the Hinkleys was choosing which of all the beautiful photos we liked best for our 30-page album.
However, Matt and Liz offer so much more than stunning photos, which is why you should seriously consider booking them. First of all, the Hinkleys could not be more organized before your wedding. They really take the time to get to know you as a couple during your engagement shoot and through a pre-wedding questionnaire. All of their forms and documents are conveniently located on an online system, and it is very easy to make payments. Also, Matt and Liz gave us great recommendations for other vendors. I think Liz responded to every one of my many emails within 12 hours or less, even during their busy wedding season! By our wedding day, I felt completely comfortable with Matt and Liz, and I was so excited to see them when they arrived at our venue.
On the wedding day, Liz stayed with me and my bridesmaids while we got ready, and she kept me calm and organized throughout the getting ready process. I honestly felt as though she was reading my mind because before I could say the words, "Where did I put my veil?" Liz would be holding my veil out for me to put on. This happened over and over throughout the evening. Liz reminded me to put on my garter, my something blue, and a piece of family jewelry I would have forgotten! I pride myself on being very organized, and I had 7 bridesmaids there plus my mother to help me on my wedding day, but somehow Liz was the one person who remembered everything! I think I said, "Thank god for Liz," about 10 times on my wedding day! She was calm, patient, and collected, and her professional demeanor kept all of us focused and excited.
Of course, I was not present while my husband was getting ready with his groomsmen, but when I told him later about how amazingly helpful and kind Liz had been with all of the girls, my husband tried to tell me that Matt was even more helpful (not possible, sorry Matt!). Apparently, Matt helped wrangle all seven rowdy groomsmen for photos, and Matt even quietly and politely encouraged a few of them to slow down on the pre-ceremony drinks (thank goodness!).
Before the ceremony, Matt and Liz arranged a special moment for my husband and I to be together in photos without seeing each other. Thanks to them, it was really creative and special!
Both Matt and Liz were completely unobtrusive during our wedding ceremony and our reception, but I also felt as though they were right nearby whenever we needed them. One of my best wedding memories was when Matt and Liz stole my husband and I away for a quick night-time, outdoor photo. It was a private, romantic moment of calm in our busy evening, and I absolutely cherish the beautiful photo from that moment.
If you are looking for photographers who will put you at ease, treat you with respect, make your wedding day even more special, and take perfect photos, then stop shopping and hire the Hinkleys.
